A New Super Smash Bros. Brawl Trailer – Debuts at Nintendo World Tour 2006

Nintendo are going to be showing a new SSBB trailer at the Nintendo World Tour 2006. November 3rd is the first tourdate, s it’s assumed that that will be when the trailer is first shown. There is also supposed to be an unveiling of a new character, just to get your speculation juices flowing. If had t make a bet on any non-nintendo character, I would of course say Sonic.

I am ecstatic. To finally know that there is a new SSBB trailer on the way. The sequel to one of the best games, in my opinion, so of course I have every right to be ecstatic.

At best I’d probably call it plain. It doesn’t look Wiiish to me.

A Summary of the New Twilight Princess Trailer

Our last story was about the new Twilight Princess Story, which was shown in Australia. Now someone at Vooks Forums, claims to have seen the footage and has written up what he saw. No-one can confirm if what he is telling is truth or lie, but it is news nevertheless.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS

Starts out with some Twilight Creatures in some sort of dark castle (Hyrule Castle?)
Goes to Cowboy Link, Epona, Colin and a couple of unidentified people. One has a sword. Epona’s loaded up with wood for some reason or another. Colin goes with the man with the sword over a rope bridge, while Link (in his cowboy outfit) smiles at him.

Next up is the transformation sequence. Cowboy Link is walking through a path, when suddenly it turns into the Twilight Realm. He transforms into a Wolf, and is dragged away. We see Midna, and next wee some gameplay of Wolf Link and Midna attacking some Twilight Creatures. There’s more gameplay, nothing particularily new but a town scene is shown with about 20 people in it, very impressive. Also, Link canoes down a rushing river, now in his classic outfit.

Few quick cuts of cutscenes, showing (among others) PRINCESS ZELDA! Zelda is casting some sort of elaborate spell, very pretty effects.

The trailer ends with Link pulling out the Master Sword and holding it up. The sword is quite a bit longer than any other game.

It seems as if there is not much new in the trailer, except for the last part. Still, I cannot wait to see it.

Wii Boxart Template – Front and Back

Well, well, well, look what I found;

Looks pretty good, except someone disgustingly cut out the wii header wrong. You can see the pixelated bits. I will be coming back with a none pixelated one just for you wiiSTYLE fans, but for now, you’ll need to stick with that.

UPDATE:
Told you I would update it with a none pixelated header. Just for you wiiSTYLE fans!

Would like to thank Phil for finding this!

3rd Party Nun-Chuk – Looks Awesome – Has a D-Pad???

This is th absolute sleekness that I was hoping the black Wii to have. Oh my god, does it appeal to me in everyway possible… Except the fact it has a D-Pad???

Still looks so nice. If it’s cheaper then the official nun-chuk, then I might buy it. A white Wii controller with black nun-chuk. Heaven.

Thanking GoNext for finding this.

General Wii Information – All New

Taken from GoNintendo, who took it from NeoGAF;

General Wii stuff

– CNN has signed up with Nintendo as the provider of news content on tne News Channel in American and Japan. News will be presented by category, but another way of getting to it is by spinning the weather globe to find stories in different countries

– Sega has moved a significant number of development staff from PS3 to Wii over the Summer

– Although Nintendo has removed DVD movie playback from the Wii, it plans to launch in Japan next year an enhanced Wii capable of such a feature

– Nintendo intended to bring Wii to shop shelves in the UK and US for £150 and $200, but became influenced by pressure from the larger retail chains, which raised concerns over margins and low so-called ‘basket value’ (ie, the amount of revenue generated from a customer’s overall purchases at the till)

– There are plenty of Wii Channel slots remaining to be filled

– Edge says that Wii Sports will be to Wii what Mario 64 was to the N64. Says golf has the best single player mode (no surprise) and boxing is their favourite overall

Now I really can’t wait for Wii Sports., especially since they liked the golf, and that’s the one I’m looking forward to playing most. The possibility of a new enhanced Wii doesn’t get me excited though. Infact it makes me feel rather anoyed just like te DS Lite did. I won’t bore you with details of why, but most of this is great news.

One Friend Code to Rule Them All

In IGN’s latest weekly episode, they take a look through the ins and outs of the Wii Console. Matt Casimassina tells us; “you are not going to be entering friend codes with each one of your games”. This is great news in my opinion. Nintendo are finally listening to the people. The people being us.
